Well — that was fast! It didn’t take long for the “Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct” number that Lindsay Lohan sashayed into a court of law wearing on Wednesday afternoon to go flying off the shelves.
The skintight, white Kimberly Ovitz design that (barely) shielded the actress as she entered a not guilty plea to one count of felony theft have been snapped up from high-end department stores all over the country, despite its $575 pricetag, ABC News said Friday. The “Glavis” Dress — featured as part of Ovitz’s Pre-Fall collection — is also sold out at every online boutique that carries Ovitz’s designs.
The dress became a viral sensation after blogosphere gabbers questioned the appropriateness of such attire for a court hearing. After spending two weeks in jail last July and making no less than four dates with judges over the past eight months, surely by now LiLo should know the difference between clothing that says “Ready for My Court Day Closeup” and cocktail dresses that scream “Ready to Knock Back a Round of White Russians.”
As usual, Lindsay just doesn’t get what all the fuss is about. In a Facebook posting pleading her innocence Thursday, Lohan wrote in part: “what i wear to court shouldnt be front page news. it’s just absurd.”
